Biden to visit three sites of 9/11 attack on 20th anniversary – Times of India

WASHINGTON: US President Joe Biden will commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11 by touring to all of the three sites of the assaults, the White House mentioned Saturday.
On September 11, the president and First Lady Jill Biden will “honor and memorialize the lives lost 20 years ago,” in accordance to the White House assertion.
They will participate in ceremonies in New York, the place the dual towers of the World Trade Center fell; in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the positioning of a crash of a airplane hijacked by 4 jihadists; and in Arlington, Virginia, the place the Pentagon was struck.
Biden had been counting on marking the 20th anniversary of the tragedy with a symbolic withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan.
But America’s longest warfare led to chaos, with the US army unprepared for Taliban’s swift takeover of the nation and the demise of 13 US troops in an attack in Kabul because the pullout was being accomplished.
